, ronald reagan's. on the other hand, you had the debt limit talks in 2011 where president obama in the middle of talks never, until this day, has gotten specific. we don't know if he offered to raise the medicare retirement age. we don't know how much he said he would cut medicare and enact entitlement reform. so he did the opposite. he went into a serious negotiation not as a candidate but as the president and never got specific. it's one of the reasons we never got a big debt limit deal. so i think mitt romney actually is following the reagan pattern. the question is who when it comes to real negotiation with congress will follow through and get it done. i think mitt romney would be stronger at that. the president, if he could have done it, would have done it. >> secretary reich, you said -- >> let me -- with due respect, with due respect to mr. fleischer, the fact is when ronald reagan was running we didn't have the kind of budget deficit we have right now. it's very -- >> that's not the point. >> let me just finish, i may, finish this thought -- you cann as a presidential ca
, you have a point there, but look, i think there's someone else here, bill clinton. had ronald reagan been alive and able to walk into the republican convention and say, look, let's look at, i've been there, turned one of these things around and mitt romney is the guy, i think maybe they would have, at an arbiter of economic policy, i think reagan would have succeeded where bill clinton did for the democrats. bill clinton came into that convention, said i've done it, i've turned an economy around. you remember when i was president, the good economic times and job growth we had. stuart: and bill clinton got it wrong in his dnc speech. he said, no president, no president could have turned around what barack obama inherented. he was flat-out wrong. ronald reagan turned things around from a worse position. >> no, but what i'm saying, i'm not arguing those points, i'm saying that what happened was clinton is, was there and was able to say, i couldn't have turned it around no one could have and if you look since that speech, that's where obama started to have this, you know, this move up in
kennedy president johnson. ronald reagan. that we believe in american values and we're going to stand strong for those values. >> jennifer: for sure. and i think everybody wants to do that regardless of which party you're in. you want to stand strong for american values. but mitt romney has been saying and he continues to say that the president has been going around the world apologizing for america's values when people who have checked us out like in "the washington post," politifact said that's a four pinocchio statement. that's an utter lie. the president hasn't gone around the world apologizing. can you give me one example of when the president apologizeed? >> we've seen in cairo and we've seen even in the statement that came out of embassy cairo after the attack that this super uber -- >> jennifer: you think that was an apology for america? >> this super conciliatory approach that if we somehow -- you know, are super understanding, we bow down to foreign leaders we apologize for mistakes -- >> jennifer: wai
. governor romney's stand is much closer to ronald reagan's, that's a peace through strength position. he believes in deterrence. in the reagan years although we had a strong military and a navy of 600 ships we weren't often involved in foreign conflicts because of the deterrent effective of a strong america. i also think governor romney is going to focus on economic issues vis-a-vis china and as he discussed yesterday -- >> jennifer: before we move over to china peace through strength obviously we got into a couple of wars under president bush and there was a bush doctrine of spreading american diplomacy around -- democracy around the world. is that similar to what romney is going to be putting forward because it is difficult to see what his because he hasn't been that specific yet. >> well, i think what happened with president bush is we were hit on 9-11 and over 3,000 americans were killed as a result of 9-11. so that's why we were in afghanistan and certainly president bush was concerned like others, that there were
the president like ronald reagan stung jimmy carter that he will immediately become the frontrunner and the so-called swings states will tighten up. most of them anyway. florida particularly will. that's my analysis right now. >> i think these state races probably will tighten but that's what happens in the final weeks of a campaign. races tend to tighten. this will be a closer race in all l get closer to election day one senses though that look an incumbent running with a record like this with the economy in such serious shape many people predicting recession with all this trouble he he has been having overseas, with all of that he he ought to be in a lot of trouble. it's surprising to many people that he is ahead. we keep thinking something will happen. is he is not a great politician but seems honorable and decent enough man that if the people were ready to make a change they would not have a lot of trouble settling on him as a reliable change agent. however it hasn't happened. we keep waiting for something to cause it to happen but it hasn't come. that's why i think people are a lot of rep
because of the debates. >> he did. is romney like ronald reagan? >> i don't think people thought ronald reagan was the great mane was at that time either. megyn: we have seen mitt romney in 26 debates. >> i was covering the debate in which mitt romney manhandled newt gingrich in florida. he showed he was capable of doing it. he was totally capable of doing it. megyn: we talked about this earlier, chris. mitt romney did very well in that one debate against newt gingrich, then he fired that debate coach. >> debate coaches -- the -- what he has to do is attack president obama. don't worry when the punditry says it was too mean or shallow or short on specifics. they always say that. he's got to launch an attack on president obama. he has got to weather the storm when the press says, oh, you are doing it wrong, we don't like what you are doing. so romney has to attack, attack, attack, then use that time in front of those viewers to lay out three simple points about what he wants to do. hit hard, keep it simple and get out of town. >> i want to point out the attack, attack, attack. there this
a consistent advantage over ronald reagan but the final presidential debate changed everything leading to a reagan landslide. now he is building a lead in key battleground states, a consultant who worked for jimmy carter, finding the right sample to survey can be tricky. >> we know from exit polls that republicans tend to respond to these polls less than oftentimes particularly to news organizations less than do democrats. >> reporter: in. >> julie: 8 there was a huge swing. dukakis lost to bush. in 1992 incumbent president was down nine points in mid-september and was tied with bill clinton by the end of october. the clinton eventually won. former clinton pollster is questioning the assumptions being made in today's polls. >> these polls are assuming that you have the same high level of african-american, latino and young people vote in 2012 that you had in 2008. >> obama campaign senior advisor david axelrod said they widely vary so when they all pointed in one direction, they are all wrong. but we are planning for a close race as we always have. another democratic strategist offered
to bomb you. george w. bush said all options are on the table. >> i remember they did that with ronald reagan. he was pretty successful. reagan said he was going to take military action and pointed missiles and made it clear. >> so reagan said all options are on the table plenty of times. >> this was a long time ago when bush was dealing with iran. iran was five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten years away from becoming nuclear. iran now could be a month away, two months away, two years away. under president obama iran has by three times increased the uranium and made it much more enriched than it was originally. that's a massive change in a short period of time. of course obama has a bad history of begging to negotiate. wrote a letter to the ayatollah six months ago wanting to talk to him. >> what would mitt romney do differently? mitt romney talking to george stephanopoulos said he had the same red line as president obama. >> we don't know what president obama's red line is since he won't share it with us. won't share it with prime minister netanyahu. he doesn't want to have a red line.
a hostage crisis. we're going to talk about ronald reagan. msnbc, they converted the scott brown, our beloved scott brown versus elizabeth warren that she checked off falsely that she is cherokee. she has the lowest requirements of any professor of any of the top law schools. she refuses to release that information. everyone knows she stole someone else's. she is -- he is being attacked to raise the issue. he is attacking for her being a cherokee. no. it's exactly the opposite. it's about not being a cherokee and she is related not to cherokee but to a white enforcer to trail of tears. she is stealing the suffering of native americans to teach from harvard law school and you wouldn't know that from listening to msnbc. >> your book is you say, how liberals have played the race card historically you believe to win black voters? >> for a hundred years they denounced black people to win a segment of the white vote,. now, they are still using race to win votes not only from black people. keep telling them republicans hate them but from white people who don't want to feel racist. it isn't a
. >> ronald reagan made it pretty clear he was going to take action, he pointed missiles at the soviet union. >> was bush wrong when he didn't say we are going to bomb you, he said all options are on the table. >> this was a long time ago when bush was dealing with iran, they were five, six, seven, eight, nine years from being becoming nuclear. iran now could be months washg a year away, two years away. iran has three times increased the uranium and made it much more enriched than originally. that is a massive change in a very short period of time. and, of course, obama has a bad history of begging to negotiate. wrote a letter to the ayatollah six months to talk to him. >> what would mitt romney do better? he had the same red line as president obama? >> we don't know. we don't know what president obama's red line is, since he won't share it with us, won't share it with prime minister netan netanya netanyahu, he wants to keep it as fuzzy as possible. if he wants to communicate is privately to the ayatollah, that's fine. but he wants to keep it fuzzy. iran will pass the point of no return with
. in '80 ronald reagan was bemind the polls and had great debates and rises in the polls and bush in '88 had great debates and starts to rise. too early to complain. >> you don't agree with johnathon martin? >> john is one of the best reporters in washington but he is talking to a lot of must be pun /* republicans that are getting nervous. they don't see romney has a 50s guy but a viable alternative. >> agree with that. >> let me bring you in to this. i argue differently than what johnathon is saying. i think mitt is muddying his message on a variety of issues, including the tax issue which he just wrote up this week and i threw two with temper tantrums a blog and full column on the subject and got calls from ultra senior people in the romney campaign that i'm not sure frankly i wanted to talk to. you see roger stone, i don't know what mitt's message is sometimes. i think i know what he intends it to be. but he is not getting it out and talking to the middle class. >> the real problem with the mitt romney campaign is mitt romney. he is inauthentic. he comes across as a guy that will say
was different ronald reagan was even with president carter. they each got 40% and congressman anderson, i think got 20%. and that had been, you know, those numbers were historic that and it may or may not have influenced the race. it did have a post camp deathth toes and specifically it had to do with yet another u.n. resolution in which the u.n. passed a resolution that essentially equated jerusalem as being occupied and the occupation of that of jerusalem that issue and carter perhaps not strongly preventing that in the way that president obama . >> i don't -- [inaudible] he directed the u.n. delegate to vote for him. >> how do i know that? because he called me up. i was coming back from china and i was on the plane and the captain of the plane comes over and said, the president would like you to call him before you talk to the press when you land. so i said okay. so when we land, -- [laughter] when we land, i -- he called up this number, and the president took the call, and first little chitchat. how was your trip. okay. have you heard about my problem? so i said, yeah, i have, mr. president
opportunity. martha: not to pat your settle on the back. >> it was ronald reagan. i lost minnesota to beckel. he won everything. martha: we'll have you guys to talk about that. there must be good stories in that. >> there are many good story. >> i'm sure there. when you look at the campaign i'm curious what you think. after the ryan pick as i said, very nice move in the polls for mitt romney. that was a real strengthening moment. what do you see as the major factor that brought us to the numbers we're at right now in this race? >> i think romney's had a struggle the last couple weeks. obviously the 47% thing last week was not good. i think he is getting back in his groove. there is sufficient time to get this thing back on track. it's a narrow place where he has to go to win but i think it is all there. he just has to execute. he now has maximum television everywhere. they have a very strong ground game as does the obama team. it is really identifying voters and get them out and they're voting already. key thing, 30, 40% of the voters will vote before election day. you have to make sure ever
in public? he was comfortable doing it. >> ronald reagan knew the way he looked from every single direction so that when he made a gesture on camera he knew how that would come across on tv. for that carter was no match. >> okay. let's take a look at the chart we just brought up there from gallup. it shows how polls changed over the course of the debates in some of the most memorable elections. have any races in your estimation, michael, been won or lost solely in the debates? >> well, aside from the reagan-carter -- that was a special case because there was only one. it was ten days before. you showed the beginning, alex, of that terrible faux-pas saying the -- gerald ford probably would have won it without that faux-pas. >>> the numbers here for 1960. we had john f. kennedy who gained three percentage points after that performance that he gave while richard nixon continuously lost ground thereafter. the story goes that it was kennedy's tan, his youthful look that won him the first televised debate. do you think that's the full story? >> i think that's part of an lore. i think much more wa
an extra dollar i get to keep more of it. the old republican line that you heard from ronald reagan and it worked for him and i guess they decided not to get into the details of it. >> shannon: a very meaty interview. thanks for the inside scoop. >> chris: thank you. >> shannon: catch the entire interview right here on the fox news channel. it airs after america's news headquarters. a disturbing case out of massachusetts. 20-year-old man pleads guilty to raping a 14-year-old girl. the girl got pregnant and now the admitted rapist wants visitation rights to the child. an exclusive investigation by the boston fox affiliate. here is mike bodette. >> reporter: the superior court judge is defending what he did, saying his primary purpose was to get the father to support the child financially and that visitation rights are not up to him. but visitation rights are just what the rapist is now look for and the victim's attorney is still blaming the judge for opening up the door to the possibility. the back and forthcoming as a state rep plans to file a bill to close the loophole in massachus
. but in three years ronald reagan had turned around the economy. we had 5 percent, 6 percent, 7 percent rate of economic growth and a month where we created a million jobs in one month. the economy did much better under the reagan program, which is cutting taxes, deregulating the economy, slamming the brakes on the money supply. that would make the case that president obama has done the opposite. he has increased the spending. there is a threat of a huge tax increase next year. if you talk to business men and women as i do all the time, they say this regulatory onslaught is smothering. >>clayton: another argument is what would have resolved the recovery faster if you allowed us to pass a greater stimulus, more government spending would have accelerated our rate of recovery. do you buy that? >>guest: i don't think very many americans boy that. we have had $5 trillion of debt in four years. that is more debt than the united states took on from 1776 through the year 2000. in other words, in four years we have borrowed more money than it took to finance the revolutionary war, the civil war, worl
